Anaerobic digestion (AD) is a process that can efficiently degrade organic waste into renewable energies. AD failure is however common as the underpinning microbial mechanisms are highly vulnerable to a wide range of inhibitory compounds. Sequencing technologies enable the identification of microbial indicators of digesters inhibition, but existing studies are limited. They used different inocula, substrates, sites and types of reactors and reported different or contradictory indicators. Our aim was to identify a robust signature of microbial indicators of phenol and ammonia inhibitions across four independent AD microbial studies. To identify such signature, we applied an original multivari..View full abstract
